A Big Wheel

I feel so badly that I haven't been a faithful blogger as I used to be. My schedule has become a little heavier than it was before, but I love to come here and catch up on my friends' blogs, etc. One of my friends and I have decided to work on 365 projects. Not the same project, but our own projects simultaneously. I am grateful to have a companion who helps keep me motivated. I was doing really well with keeping it updated, then as my wedding date approached, things kind of fizzled out. Jeanette approached me with the idea of starting it again. We decided the start of the new year would be a good time to get them going.

Kaitlyn started online high school at the start of the new year as well. She's worked on her studies for a week now and already feels like it's been a good move for her as she is enjoying the independent, self-paced study and believes that she is getting so much more out of her education. The day that we met the administrators for the online high school, we decided to spend a little time downtown denver. This was one of the fun scenes. It was a cold day. Kaitlyn and I walked a short distance and we began to talk about what we wanted for lunch. Kaitlyn started giggling. I followed her gaze and saw this old bicycle. I had to laugh, too, because I saw the antique-style bike with a modern bike helmet hanging from the handlebar parked outside the cell phone store...the modern mixed with the antiquity was an interesting blend. And look at how the lady is craning her neck to check out the old bicycle! She was captivated, too. I wonder if she was wondering the same thing we were...."Did someone REALLY ride that to the cellphone store?"

I love this shot.

I love this shot, too!
I think of you a lot, even though I don't comment as much as I'd like to.

Much love to you.

Isn't just a fun mix of old and new?
